How do you get flat stomach and sexy abs?

Does anyone know the formula? I have abs but I can’t get the last 2 to come out (the lower abs). I think the problem is I can’t stop eating rice. I’m Filipino we eat rice like 3 times a day. Any suggestions? 5’11ft 170lbs 20 years old.

Answer:

Eat clean. Cardio daily, abs daily. And make sure you are progessing in your workouts. Honestly, the eating clean is the hardest part about that entire sequence. Abs are made in the kitchen and maintained at the gym.

Abs are made in the kitchen. That being said you do have to work out a little but the main focus should be on what you’re eating!!! Cut out the salt. Cut out the processed foods.

What can I do to bulk up?

I’m 5’10, 135 lbs, just turned 18. I’m pretty tired of being so skinny. I’m cut but I’m not muscular. I have no body fat. I’d like to put on mainly muscle but also some fat, all over my body. Calves, thighs, abs, chest, back, arms, etc. I just joined anytime fitness, bought a bunch of whey protein, and have money to spend for additional things. Can you give me a good workout routine? I can do as many days a week as possible for optimal and quickest bulk. Thanks!

Answer:

I’m too lazy to type out my entire answer, so I copied and pasted the following from one of my earlier answers. The thing to keep in mind is that SIZE is a byproduct of STRENGTH, not the other way around. And the best way to build strength is with the big barbell movements. By that I mean squats, deadlifts, and presses. The Holy Trinity of Meatheads everywhere. As far as an actual program, that depends on where you are in your training at the moment. If you have little to no experience with the barbell movements, Starting Strength by Mark Rippetoe is the gold standard for beginners. Madcow or Strong Lift 5×5 programs are also very effective in building strength and therefore size. 5/3/1 by Jim Wendler is another option, but more suited to a slightly more advanced lifter. I feel obligated to mention it because it has worked like a charm for me. You will notice that every program mentioned focuses on squats, deadlifts and presses. There is a reason for that: they work. Even when you get more time under the barbell, you should always do some kind of squat, some kind of deadlift, and some kind of press. They are staples in all of the big boys training routines. As far as nutrition, I am about the last person on the planet qualified to give advice. I will say that quality proteins (eggs, fish, chicken, lean beef, beans), whole grains, plenty of vegetables (oatmeal, quinoa, brown rice) and good fats (grass fed butter, extra virgin olive and coconut oil, avocados) are all vital. HOWEVER seeing as you want to bulk fast, gallon of whole milk a day is a good call. As is hitting the nearest Chinese buffet and not coming out until you are distended and disgusted with your self. Creatine, a multivitamin, fish oil pills and a protein powder are all useful for building strength. Strength, as I mentioned earlier, is central to all training. To quote Mark Rippetoe, “It doesn’t take an already-strong person more than three or four weeks to get back into very good condition if he has somehow lost it. But it takes a distance runner a couple of years to get strong if he’s never been strong before.”

Whats better to workout abs first and then do cardio or the opposite?

Whats better to workout abs first and then do cardio or the opposite? or do cardio then abs workout?

This question was not answered by a nutritionist, however another user commented.

Answer:

I believe that you should any and all strength training, including ab work; before you do cardio. You want to have as much energy as possible to do your strength training. You also want to deplete your first tier energy sources, so that you’re more likely to burn fat during your cardio.

This question was not answered by a nutritionist, however another user commented.

Answer:

Working on ur abs u won’t be lifting more than ur body weight so u will be absolutely fine. Do sit up to ur elbow. There is a few other ways. lie on the ground and form a v and try and hold it for as long as you can. Gd luck remember never give up keep going.

Answer:

Getting a nice set of abs is such a misunderstood process. It’s actually a lot easier than most people think which is why most people are in a never ending quest to get that perfect six pack – it’s because they’re doing all the wrong things. When you eat more calories than you burn, your body takes those extra calories and stores them as fat somewhere on your body. For some people, the #1 fat storage area is around the thighs and for others it might be around the stomach – it differs from person to person. Sometimes the fat is perfectly distributed around the body so it’s not as big of a concern. If an excessive amount of fat is stored around your stomach, the reason that you’re not seeing your abs is because your body fat percentage is too high. What you need to do is create a calorie deficit (take in less calories than you burn) so that your body is forced to use its fat stores for energy. After a few weeks of doing this, you’ll notice that your abs will start to show. You first step is to figure out how many calories you burn each day. Use this calculator http://calorieneedscalculator.com for an estimate. Now you need to increase the amount of calories you burn by exercising more and decreasing the amount of calories you eat. Cut out junk food such as fast food, candy and sugar. Eat foods that are high in fiber: bread and pasta made from 100% whole wheat, brown rice, oats, fruits and vegetables. You shouldn’t ignore targeting your abs with sit ups, leg raises and twists but doing hundreds of sit ups won’t do anything about the layer of fat that is covering them. Cardio and calorie restriction should be your main focus. If you need more details on getting a six pack, visit The Straight Health Forums – http://forums.straighthealth.com

Answer:

Just about everyone wants to have nice abs that make them look great. Unfortunately many people try to get nice abs by doing all the wrong things! If you make some of the mistakes below it is likely that you will never get a solid six pack. Mistake #1: Trying to do too many crunches to lose stomach fat. If only doing lots of crunches worked for carving out a solid set of abs. If doing a few hundred crunches was all it took to lose body fat then everyone walking around would not have any excess fat. Doing lots of crunches and other ab exercises do not help you get nice abs simply because they do not help you lose the fat that covers them up! That means that the main focus of your diet and workout regimen should be to lose body fat. Doing endless amounts of ab exercises just won’t help do that. Mistake #2: Not eating the right food. If you have excess body fat that you can’t seem to get rid of, then you absolutely have to understand that it is simply the result of taking in too many calories. Its not from poor genetics or some other physical disorder, it just comes down to consuming too many calories. The fitness models who have the sexiest abs of anyone will be the first to tell you they got that way by being extremely careful about what they eat. Cut sugars and flours. Add reasonable protein and lots of veggies and fruits to your diet. Acai is very powerful berry that helped my abs to show almost instantly and with very little workout. Mistake #3: Not lifting weights This will seem counterintuitive to some, but lifting weights is an excellent way to lose more body fat. Resistance training will give you more lean muscle mass that will have a dramatic impact with increasing your resting metabolism. Getting nice abs does not have to be a big struggle in which you are constantly playing the guessing game. You simply need to eat the right foods at the right time while tracking your calories.
